Oh, now I get it!!!

Just got more lab reports---and it ain't a pretty picture.

These are from a doctor who was supposed to be an "expert".
Here are the highlights:

Anti Thyroid Antibodies
Thyrogobulin Auto AB
Thyroid Perox. AB >70.00 [<2.1]

T4 Total 14.3 [5.0-12.0]

Free Thyroxin Index 3.65 [1.45-3.60]

Months Later:

T4 Total 13.8 [5.0-12.0]

T Uptake 25.5 [24.5-35.0]

Free Thyroxin Index 3.52 [1.45-3.60]

TSH II 1.540 [0.400-5.000]

Months Later:
TSHII 1.570 [0.400-5.000]

All this time, I complained to the doctor about extreme fatigue and muscle weakness. He said I was probably trying to do to much. I told him I was just trying to walk outside to get the mail.

This doctor did 6 labs in 9 months---I finally quit going to him when he said there was no way I could gain 12 pounds in three days and my stomach expand at least three inches overnight.
What a waste of money and time!
